5:11 pm
building to save that little baby. the city of berkeley e fix some homeless from the marina. -- e fix -- evicts some homeless from the marina. they didn't have to go for. and the countdown starts and it will not be long before the rockets of the warriors tip off . we had some 90 degree temperatures today and the temperature in the inland valley was warm.
5:12 pm
john chiang's father came it'here with little money,on. but big dreams for a better future. now john has a chance to make history. a champion of the underdog,
5:13 pm
john took on wells fargo when it ripped off working families. and against the odds, he helped saved california from financial disaster during the great recession. ...leaving more to invest in progressive priorities like education, healthcare and affordable housing. john chiang. the proven, progressive leader we need for california's future. dog: seresto, seresto, seresto. jake... seresto, seresto, seresto. whatever your dog brings home to you, it shouldn't be fleas and ticks. seresto gives your dog 8 continuous months of flea and tick protection in an easy-to-use, non-greasy collar. seresto, seresto, seresto. ohh no, jake. seresto. 8 month - seresto, seresto, seresto. so the season for the warriors comes down to tonight.
5:14 pm
it is the seventh game against the houston rockets. said at the warriors come away with the win, they will advance to the finals for the fourth straight year, but if they lose, their season is over. we are live in houston tonight where the tipoff is about 45 minutes away. >> reporter: i guess that is how it is supposed to be asked when to -- to deliver good teams play, this is what happens. inks are starting to crank up here and you can see that dream on green -- draymond green is out there. it was announced that chris paul will not be in the lineup tonight as he is still suffering from his hamstring injury. what we could not help noticing about both coaches is that they are loose, and they have maintained their sense of humor
5:15 pm
and very kopelman re-about each scene. they are just relishing this opportunity to be in a game seven. but what steve kerr did say is that this group of warriors that he has coach, this is the third time they have been in the game seven, and he feels like they may be more prepared for it than you might think. >> i think everybody has butterflies, once a player settle in, it will get easier, and i am confident as i mentioned earlier with our experience because our core guys have been through this a few times, i think that will be helpful to allow us to get on track quicker. >> reporter: this was steph curry a little while ago. clay thompson and kevin durant just left the court a little while ago. you cannot help thinking that as long as those guys are playing their game, there is not anybody who can beat them. when they get in trouble is when they don't value their
5:16 pm
possessions and when they have lapses on defense, and we have seen that happen. as you look at this game tonight, i think if you look at last night's game between boston and cleveland and you say kevin love is not there for cleveland, but what did the cavaliers do? they go and win a tough game on the road. you can't take about injuries and you have to think about the people that you have on the court and expect them to go out and play, and this is the kind of games that define careers. good players really relish these opportunities. i have the best job in the world right now in that i get to sit here and watch game seven of a playoff series. i am looking for to it in less than an hour. >> would chris paul being out would that be like kevin durant or steph curry being out for the warriors? >> reporter: on paper, you would think that actually hurts the rockets more because they don't have the firepower that
5:17 pm
the warriors have. the warriors had the big four, and with the rockets, you are thinking about two. so on paper, it hurt the rockets more, but i think if we have learned anything, you have to play it on the court because we don't plan on paper. >> it gets underway in about 40 minutes, and there's nothing better than a game seven. the winner tonight will face lebron james and the cleveland cavaliers again. they won game seven in boston last night, and that means that lebron james will be playing in his eighth consecutive nba finals. the last three have been against the warriors, so we could be looking at a fourth consecutive nba finals between the warriors in the cavaliers. it has been warm and even hot in the east bay for a second straight day. here is a live look at mount diablo and all of that green grass is turning yellow and brown. temperatures rose above the 90
5:18 pm
degree mark. >> a similar picture from san francisco. just a stunning shop there! blue skies over the bay and a great shot of downtown san francisco. >> that is such a clear shot! that is gorgeous! let's go over to the weather center for a look at what is to come. are we going to have a full week like this? >> it is going to cool off and yes. it will get back to not as cool as it has been later, but we were in to some of the mid 90s and some of the in some spots. the high pressure ridge is setting up and the air is sinking, and that is the way it has been for the last couple of days. saturday was a transition day and sunday was like today. tomorrow, a nice day but the marine layer starts to expand a little bit, and we move back to
5:19 pm
a cooler pattern. it will not be a huge expansion, but it means the temperatures will come down on tuesday, partly, on wednesday back into the 70s and low 80s. this is the water vapor loop, and you can see the cities like dallas and tulsa and houston. we can take a look at alberto, and it has made landfall with gusts up to 50 miles per hour. this is pretty early for this type of activity. we had a tornado and a tornado watch in effect until 10:00 p.m. central standard time in the kansas city area and east of there. we have fog south of here. the story for us is high pressure. you can see the footprint in the fog and the winds is north,
5:20 pm
and northeast. that was enough to take the fog and push it down into southern monterey bay and get a day like today. a beautiful not for the sunset and no fog. 88 degrees in napa right now. 94 degrees in concord. that is eight departure from yesterday. here is -- that is a departure from yesterday. tomorrow all's temperature will trend down and instead of the low and mid 90s, we will see the upper 80s in these areas. around the bay, that means more mid to low 70s. it will be a little bit cooler and that is okay because it will drop the fire danger as well.
5:21 pm
when i come back, we will get specific with the forecast for your backyard. emergency officials in hawaii say the fast moving lava from the volcano has destroyed 10 more homes in the past 24 hours. a drone capture this aerial view of the volcano earlier today. the latest homes to be lost is in the same subdivision that was evacuated earlier this more -- month. more than 50 homes have been destroyed says the emergency began. new evacuation orders are expected to go out soon for those in the path of the volcano. >> if one of them cracks form, you can be cut off, so those guys need to be aware of not just being in there and forgetting what is going on. that subdivision is bondable at this point. >> more than 2000 people have fled the area, and the frequent eruptions at the summit continue , including one early this morning. city leaders of berkeley

parked across from the street from a hotel and had to move out today. earlier, the city of berkeley posted signs and issued verbal warnings ordering them to move their vehicles out by 5:00 a.m. this morning, or face towing, impoundment, and fines. >> everybody is supposed to have a permit on the car from the harbor. but the harbor is not consulting with the city because the city has been passing a policy to stop mistreating the homeless. >> the police are doing the bidding of the city council and the city manager and the manager of the doubletree, and they are moving an entire community of otherwise homeless residents who are in the vehicles to nowhere as far as they are concerned. >> reporter: many of the vehicles look fairly roadworthy with some of them sitting for up to a year. but the encampment caught too much attention of too many
5:26 pm
marina businesses, prompting the eviction. >> they are making the people's live, and what they are doing to stay alive a criminal act, and we don't think it is right and we think it violates the constitution. >> i cannot do anything. i can sit here, and i can pray to god that everybody in this town understand that we are human beings and they are human beings. there is nothing i can do. if you think berkeley offered us any services, they didn't. >> reporter: one of the rvs that left hauling a boat and a trailer ended up just one quarter of a mile away with an unknown future. a small encampment has taken root -- root along the highway. so where did they go? they don't just disappear in
